Bill to limit households to 10 plantsA new bill being vetted by a House committee on cannabis and hemp will limit the number of cannabis plants which a household could grow to ten and require large-scale cannabis growers to pay a progressive levy to the government which increases with the size of the operation. A spokesman for the committee, Panthep Puapongpan, said the majority of the committee's members agreed to cap the number of cannabis plants allowed per household to ten, in order to limit the potential for abuse in the wake of the plant's recent decriminalisation. The committee agreed to cap the number of plants per household to ten to ensure households could still benefit from the private cultivation of cannabis, which the government is promoting as a cash crop, he said. At least 900,000 individuals have already registered to grow cannabis at home with authorities, according to the latest figures cited by Mr Panthep. The bill also seeks to introduce progressive levies on commercial cannabis growers.
